Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenges!!!!!!!!!

Hello, I am so excited to share with you all and welcome you to the very first Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenges.

We will be having these challenges every two weeks and the themes are so fun!!

This week, Challenge #1 the theme is "Pick Your Own Holiday"

You can visit this website from or if you find another National Celebration in March you can use it also! Make sure you mention on your project post what day and what celebration it is!!!

For this challenge I had a hard time deciding on just one so I did the best that I could on the little time I had available to craft. I hope you like... here goes:

Project #1 March 7th - Telephone Patent granted to Alexander Graham Bell in 1876
I used BoBunny papers, Phone is from Nifty Fifties cartridge, stamps are from Market Street Stamps(behind the phone) and Pink by Design and also Scrappy Moms, the flowers are from my stash from when I first started scrapping. (I am a paper and flower hoarder, LOL)

This is the inside of the 9"x4" card
I made another because I loved this phone too... and this phone is from the From My Kitchen cartridge while this paper is from We R Memory keepers and the line is called Girls Night Out

Project # 2 March 18 - Sparky the Fire Dog's birthday ( the mascot of the NFPA )

For this card I used plain white, black, red, brown and yellow cardstock with some SEI ink, my Sakura Black Glaze pen and myScrappy moms stamps. The cartridges I used are the Spring (solutions) and the CAC

Project # 3 March 20 - Start of Spring
I used the Spring cart and I used DCWV paper and some PBD twine

Project # 4 March is Music in our schools month over at

I can't remember who made this paper but I know I got it from Michael's last year.
I used my Playtime cartridge and some pearls to coat the piano (they are so shiny) and a little of the rest of the card.

Now, make sure you go visit Abby over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby and check out all the other DT's projects! You are sure to find tons of inspiration.
